11 July 2011

Back to our regularly scheduled program...

What fun to have a week off from work and traveling around different parts of Pittsburgh.  I did notice, it took me almost three days to actually relax...which means I was entirely too high strung and need to try and avoid that in the next few months until my next week off!

Today I want to share a stop I made on the way into Pittsburgh, off Rt. 79 (exit 45 I think, if you are interested).  Sarris Candies and Ice Cream Shop...can I have an Amen?



This place was recommended HEAVILY by some friends from the area, so I had to stop.  Their praise still didn't prepare me for the sheer glory of the candy shop and fun to be found here.  The only thing that saved me from buying out the place was the 92 degree heat and the drive I was still making for a bit longer.

They had some really adorable July 4th displays all over the store, which even pictures cannot communicate the size and glory...



Here's a summary of a few of the fun items I came across.  (I used a new iPhone app (PicFrame) to put it together.)


The store was really bright not only in lighting, but in energy.  Everyone there was happy and the lines were not too long, even for a Sunday on a holiday weekend.


Ridiculously fun use of chocolate and candies!

I may need to make a trip when it is colder, to buy Christmas gifts all around.  Nothing you wouldn't love here.  Below is another iPhone photo with a little cute trim to fit the theme (Camera+ app).

Of course, if candy isn't for you - there is a whole Ice cream shop on the other side.  The servings are enormous and the taste is spectacular.  And yes, I did need to use my Tide pen on my shirt after the monster chocolate "single dip" cone, why do you ask?!


If you find yourself on Rt. 79 in Pennsylvania, do try to stop off at Sarris - worth every minute!

M.E.

Ok...I'm writing that down. My family lives in Nothern PA and we travel 79 every time we go up to visit them. Sadly, we were just up last weekend and won't be up again until Christmas...now I can't wait! :) Thanks for sharing!
